Cutting Temperature Measurements of Segmented Chips using Dual-Spectrum High-Speed Microvideography



Jarred C. Heigel, Robert W. Ivester, Eric P. Whitenton


Dual-Spectrum high speed microvideography involves the use of synchronized high speed visible light (30,000 frames/s) and infrared (600 frames/s) cameras. This paper presents analysis method and results of such a system to determine chip temperatures during during orthogonal cutting of American Iron and Steel Institute 1045 steel with coated carbide tool. Speeds from 200-600 m/min at a feeds of 0.15 mm/rev and 0.30 mm/rev represent industrially relevant cutting conditions. Obtaining temperature measurements on precise points of the chip by using the visible light images to navigate the infrared images proves to be advantageous.
